The Wisconsin Badgers are losing many players to the transfer portal after choosing Luke Fickell over Jim Leonhard as their head coach. One of these, of course, former five-star quarterback recruit Graham Mertz. In addition to current players choosing to leave, several recruits that previously committed to Wisconsin are now opening up their recruiting again. One of these is four-star running back Jaquez Keyes.
I will never be able to thank the University of Wisconsin & staff enough for everything 🙏🏾 At this time I am decommitting from Wisconsin & opening up my recruitment.

According to Jon McNamara of Badgers Blitz, Keyes had chosen Wisconsin over offers from Pittsburgh, Iowa, Coastal Carolina, and Army.
